CERTIFIED ORGANIC! Matan Organic pepper seeds are bred from the original Jimmy Nardello lineage. Nardello immigrated from southern Italy to New England in 1887, bringing his family’s heirloom pride and joy pepper.
Matan peppers are sweet, crisp, juicy, and flavourful, with thin skins that make them ideal for cooking, drying, or eating raw.
CBest of all, they are extremely early, and the low growing plants are very productive.
CThe peppers are a little bit like the Pepperoncini variety, but with smoother skin and an even more refined, smokey, slightly hot flavour.
These peppers dry well, freeze well, and add colour and pop to salads or salsas. But you’ll be eating them in the garden, straight off the plants.
Matures in 80-90 days. (Open-pollinated seeds)
Growing Pepper Seeds
Peppers need plenty of time to mature before they will bloom and set fruit.
Start indoors six to eight weeks before the last frost date, grow under bright lights.
Transplant only when weather has really warmed up. Night time low temperatures should be consistently above 12°C (55°F) before hardening off pepper plants and transplanting outdoors.
Soil temperature for germination: 25-29°C (78-85°F). Using a heat mat for your pepper seeds is ideal. Seeds should sprout in 10 – 21 days.
